I love this year’s John Lewis Christmas TV advert and its festive shop windows – see above and check these little cuties out at the JL stores in York and Sheffield.
They are proof that great minds think alike. Yorkshire makers Marbletree have also joined the penguin parade this season with their very own version of the bird carved from dark or cream marble. He, or she – I’m not sure how you tell the difference – is 17cms high and costs £29. As well as carved animals and hearts, the lovely team at Marbletree also design and make personalised cheese boards and wine coolers plus a host of other original products. I have one of their wine coolers that reads “Time to chill … Sharon!” Cheers to that! www.marbletree.co.uk
